This year’s event will be a real treat for foodies and Star Wars fans alike. Drawing inspiration from the beloved characters, worlds and stories, the chefs at Disney’s Hollywood Studios have created a whole host of gourmet bites just for the occasion!

Shrimp and Chorizo Skewer at Star Wars: Galactic Nights

New on the menu this year are items such as the Shrimp and Chorizo Skewer. A tribute to the hearty appetite of the Wookiees, this generously-loaded skewer is complete with Chorizo sausage, sweet potato hash and shrimp. Other new items include the Tatooine Bisque, inspired by the sandstorms and moisture farms of Tatooine with rutabaga, turnips, carrots and parsnips; and the Sweet and Crunchy Popcorn, which is based on the iconic garbage chute scene in Episode IV! This popcorn comes loaded with cookies, caramel, chocolate and pecans.
